Today we looked at some pictures of Soviet photo editing, much like what Winston seems to be doing in 1984, and talked briefly about the technology of 1984 and how the book is a form of science fiction.

Following this, we learned about the Marxist lens of literary criticism.

We took a quiz over Part 1 Chapter 4 through Part 2 Chapter 2. Afterward, we practiced working with the Marxist lens via a reading and analysis of "Araby" by James Joyce. This is found on page 1326 of the green textbook, or can be found online here or in other places. The instructions and information are found in the attached notes.

Your reading assignment for Friday is to read through page 167 (the end of Part 2 Chapter 7) of 1984.
